US Capitol: Black Rioters Would Have Been Shot – Kevin Hart
NEWSMAN – American stand-up comedian, Kevin Hart has joined host of Americans in condemning the protest at US Capitol.
A violent protest had erupted at US Capitol after Trump addressed his followers vowing “never to concede”.
The legendary comedian wasn’t joking when he expressed his thoughts on Wednesday. He shared an image that shows protestors scaling the walls of the Capitol building and one where a protester had his boots kicked up on an office desk inside. Hart tried his best to put his emotions into words to express how he feels the situation would have been handled if the protesters were black.
His post read: “Two completely different America’s that we are living in, “If these people were black, they would have all been shot dead. This shit is past the word ‘sad’ at this point it is pure disrespect to all people of color. Why can’t we see this situation handled the same way that we have seen our people handled repeatedly…. when the armed officers are supposed to use force, they don’t…. Shit is f*cking SAD!!!!!”
The actor said he couldn’t understand why everyone doesn’t see the situation the same way but, judging by the fierce debates by his fans in the comments section of his post, it’s clear that not everyone shares his point of view.
Half of his followers agreed with him about how American society is not equal and the other half was quick to point out the fact that a white woman lost her life.
“You do realize a white woman was shot dead in the Capitol today, right?” one follower said trying to make some sort of point.
“Privilege. Privilege. & Even More Privilege 🇺🇸🥴,” a fan who agrees with Kevin commented.
